For Chantelle, the best parts of her bouquet were red feathers and silver butterflies, which were mixed in with roses and coxcomb. She wanted lots of texture and variety.

Chantelle always knew she wanted a dress with a full skirt, which made her sexy red heels even more fun.

In addition to their guest book, Chantelle and Scott prepared red tags for guests to jot down little bits of advice and hang them from the branches of a four-foot-tall wish tree, which was also decorated with hanging crystals.

The design on the programs matched that of the save-the-date cards—whimsical vines with a few flowers. Chantelle worked with the stationer to tweak the design to her taste.

To create a lounge-type feel (after all, their reception locale was once Marilyn Monroe’s home), Chantelle and Scott set up two red sofas and small tables, which kept guests from feeling tied to their seats.

Elegant centerpieces of red flowers, crystals, and feathers, arranged in silver or red boxes, decorated the tables. Silver branches styled with hanging crystals were added to some for extra height.

Both Chantelle and Scott are vegetarian so they incorporated lots of yummy meatless dishes into their menu. As appetizers, they served roasted tomato soup cappuccino and Anjou pear with Roquefort.

Instead of anything traditional, Chantelle and Scott went with a red cake that perfectly fit with the wedding decor. Light-blue sugar flowers cascaded down the tiers for a whimsical look.

Chantelle & Scott in Palm Springs, CA

While on a mission to Africa, Chantelle became friends with a friend of Scott. Chantelle and Scott met at dinners through their mutual friend, and eventually they went out on a date. The Bride Chantelle Skoretz, 35, an owner of an assisted living facility The Groom Scott Walker, 37, an emergency physician The Date April 18 Eleven months later, Chantelle and Scott had just bought their first house together. The day after the final papers were signed, they went by their new place. Scott had stopped by earlier and hung a banner that read, “Will you marry me, Chantelle?” in the garage. He proposed as soon as they walked in. The best part: Scott had secretly set up a camera to record everything. When they watched it, they realized they both looked and sounded much more nervous than they had felt.
